List Your Guilty Pleasure Reads
For me, my guilty pleasure reads are typically action packed, fun, with a (modest) helping of cheese to add to the fun (but not too much, I've grown out of stuff like Hitchhiker's Guide and cant go back), but lets use this thread to discuss our guilty pleasure reads, regardless of what type of books fall in there for you.
My most recent "guilty pleasure" reads are:
(1) Monster Hunters series (urban fantasy in a buffy-like world with way more guns) and the Grimnoir series by Larry Correia (super hero powers lensed through magic). (The Grimnoir series has a tighter plot than Monster Hunters to the degree that maybe it doesnt qualify as a "guilty pleasure".) Highly recommend both series.
(2) Hard Luck Hank: Screw the Galaxy: A "level 4 mutant" with unusual density (he is hard to hurt) has a series of misadventures and ends up saving his space station. Really enjoyed it.
(3) Bill the Vampire series: When Bill gets bitten, one in a million luck turns him into an ultra-rare type of vampire, and a variety of adventures and misadventures await. Liked this series a lot too, although maybe not quite as much as the first two on the list.

This was just posted on reddit as well. I dunno if I feel guilty about it, but fantasy as a whole is my guilty pleasure. Because the more dorky it is, the more I generally like it. Give me wizards, goblins, elves, dragons, lots of magic and battles and I'm happy.

every time i get a flu. i can't help it. it's almost compulsive. it's so fuzzy and cheerful that i can't not read it when i'm sick.
otherwise *looks around hesitantly* pulp westerns.

I don't feel guilty about anything but even though they're naff I must confess to enjoying some of the WH40K books, mostly Dan Abnett's stuff.
